The Sultanate of Abzul is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 325 million Abzulians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fardjudos. The average income tax rate is 17.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Abzulian economy, worth 21.1 trillion abzulas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,898 abzulas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft, schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, and the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Abzul's national animal is the cammel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abzul is ranked 59,277th in the world and 2,620th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,583.74 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
